Commentary

Have yourself a

GREEN CHRISTMAS!

By Stephanie Renaud B.A., B.Ed. I don’t know about you, but the amount of garbage that is generated in my house at Christmas time is utterly insane. Alongside the mountains of presents, there are mountains of wrapping paper, tissue paper, packaging, bottles, cans, cards . . . you name it. It’s absolutely unreal. As a conscious consumer, I have done my best the past five years or so to bring this chaos into some measure of sanity. Every year I do things a little more skillfully and shave a bit more off the mountain. Why do I do this? Honestly, because I am incredibly aware of the effect that every little action and choice of mine has on the world around me. Here’s the thing; climate change is real. The impact that each and every one of us has on the biosphere is undeniable. I can hear what you’re thinking, “Does it really matter if I do it? Millions of others aren’t changing, so what’s the point of me going to the trouble of doing things differently? It’s not really going to make a big enough difference to make it worth my while, is it?” It absolutely is, especially when you are a parent. Your action affects and impacts your children. They learn how to behave by observing how you behave. As you design a Green Christmas, they will see how being a responsible citizen starts every day, with each and every one of us. Christmas is about giving, caring for one another. I take this one step further and make it about caring for the planet without which we would have no place to call home. So, in the spirit of giving, I want to share with you some of the tricks I have learned over the past five years that will help you reduce, reuse, and recycle your way to a greener Christmas. 1. REDUCE — There is a reason this R is listed first. It’s a powerful way to save energy and resources that are consumed when goods are produced for use (and reuse), as well as the energy consumed for the recycling step. There are lots of places you can reduce your impact at Christmas.

December 2016/January 2017 | Windsor Parent

Turn off your Christmas lights when you go to bed. All that single use wrapping? Opt instead for gift bags or even better, cloth. How many of you have kids who play with their Christmas toys for about a month after the holidays and then they are forgotten for the favourites, never to be touched again? I sure do. Instead of things, make memories by gifting experiences. Tickets to a concert, an outing to a movie, or even a vacation that you have been dying to tale. Gift cards are awesome too, because then the gifted can buy something they really want and will value, making the investment of resources worth everyone’s while. 2. REUSE — When it comes to Christmas trash, wrapping is a big piece of the pie. There are tons of ways that you can choose to reduce the pile of paper on your living room floor, and in the trash bins this holiday. Instead of single use wrapping paper, reuse old magazine pages, old posters, or even maps. Have a huge rag bag full of old clothes? Cut them up and use them to wrap presents, or act as ribbons. No time to get creative like this? Gift bags are amazing. I have saved myself so much headache with wrapping by using gift bags. They are generally sturdy and can be used again and again. We have some in our family that have been reused for years, and have made the rounds of many of our relatives. 3. RECYCLE — What you can’t reduce or reuse, do your best to recycle. Gather all the recyclable wrapping, packaging and tissue into one bag, and pop it into your recycle bins. The month before and including Christmas see an increase of 25 per cent in waste production in the typical Canadian household. That has a huge impact. In the spirit of giving and caring, give a thought to future generations of your grandchildren and great grandchildren, and use your power to give for good. With wishes for a warm and green holiday from my family to yours.

Young girls support In Honour of the Ones We Love By Dan Schwab

A group of young girls from LaSalle have proven themselves to be a shining example of selflessness and generosity by recently taking part in a haircut-a-thon to support cancer patients and making wigs for children living with the disease. Alessia DeThomasis, 10, had the original idea and when her younger sisters Daniela, 7, and Lia, 5, heard about it, they wanted to participate as well. Their cousin, Erica Battagello, 11, also got on board. Together, the girls canvassed their neighbourhood for donations for In Honour Of The Ones We Love, a fundraising organization that supports cancer patient care in Windsor and Essex County. In total, they raised about $1,300 for the cause. In Honour Of The Ones We Love set up a haircut-a-thon event recently at Nefertiti Beauty Salon on Ottawa Street, thanks to owner Irina Arakelian and stylist Margaret Cheneyz. Alessia had 11 inches of hair cut off, Erica had 10 inches cut, and Daniela and Lia each cut off seven inches. A schoolmate from École élémentaire catholique Monseigneur-Augustin-Caron, Clair Sasso, also had her hair cut for the cause. The girls’ hair that was cut off will be used to make wigs for children living with cancer that have lost their own hair from radiation and chemotherapy treatments. When asked why Alessia wanted to donate her hair, she said: “It isn’t fair that people with an illness lose their hair and they deserve to have hair.” Middle sister Daniela agreed that she wanted “to make wigs for sick people” and youngest sister Lia said, “It was a nice thing to do.” Erica wanted to donate her hair “because there are so many people suffering from cancer and I wanted to do something nice for them.” Clair wanted to donate her hair “to give it to people who had cancer and lost all their hair so they could make a wig.” Alessia, Daniela and Lia’s mom, Claudia Corro DeThomasis, is extremely proud of all the girls. “They wanted to raise money for the charity because they knew it was going to a good cause,” she explained. “They were very excited and they knew they were doing a good thing.”

Ready or not? Get prepared for winter driving Take the time to get ready for the winter season and ensure you have done everything possible to prepare for the demands of winter driving. Consider the condition of your vehicle, prepare winter driving essentials to pack in your vehicle, remind yourself about winter driving safety tips, and check road and weather conditions before leaving the house. Vehicle preparation Before the bad weather hits, prepare your vehicle for winter driving by getting a maintenance check-up and checking your fluid levels. Take the time to make a list of winter driving essentials to keep in your vehicle such as an ice scraper to help remove all snow and ice from your vehicle. Consider installing winter tires on your vehicle to allow for better traction and safety.

Keep an emergency kit in your vehicle for unexpected events; this should include water and non-perishable food items, a first aid kit, a flashlight, a thermal blanket, a candle in a deep can, a lighter, shovel, sand or kitty litter for traction, booster cables, warm clothes, and footwear. Other items you may want to consider including are a fully charged cell phone for emergency calls or items specific to the travellers in your vehicle such as baby supplies. Before you go It is important before setting out on a long trip to be well rested and ensure that you have checked the weather and road conditions for your travel plans before leaving. Based on weather and road conditions, in some cases it may be best to delay your trip. Before you head out on a road trip, check in with 511 – a 24-hour telephone service that provides information on provincial road closures, winter road conditions, and major construction projects! Their website — Ontario.ca/511 —also provides travelers with access to traffic and weather cameras, locations of carpool lots, and links to border wait times. Winter driving safety Many winter collisions occur because drivers are driving too fast for the road conditions. It is important that when you are driving in the winter you must slow down, stay alert, and stay in control. There is also a need to keep extra space between you and other vehicles while focusing on the task of driving and avoiding distractions, like cell phones or the radio. If kids will be travelling in the vehicle prepare them so that they are not a distraction. Let them know that driving requires your attention. 122 Fox Street, Cottam

Road conditions can be deceiving Continued from page 9

Road conditions can be deceiving. What may look like water on the road can actually be ice, so when driving, it is important to avoid hard braking, quick accelerations and abrupt gear changes as this can cause you to skid. If you do skid, release your brakes and steer in the direction you want to go, without oversteering. Cruise control is also not recommended on wet, snowy or icy roads as it reduces your reaction time and vehicle control. This winter, the Province of Ontario has made some improvements for winter road maintenance. There is an expanded service called Track My Plow (TrackMyPlow.com) that will help you when travelling through the following areas: London, Chatham, Owen Sound, Niagara/Hamilton, Peel/Halton, Toronto/York, Durham, Simcoe, Kingston West, Bancroft, Kingston East, and Huntsville. Parents can set positive examples for the drivers of the future by being prepared, slowing down, and staying alert and in control of their vehicles.

Baby teeth matter. That’s why parents who deliver babies in Windsor and Essex County will now receive a custom Oral Health ‘Shark Bag’ designed to educate parents about the importance of baby oral health. The Essex County Dental Society, Windsor-Essex County Health Unit and the City of Windsor have prepared 4,000 Shark Bags to be distributed to new parents in the Family Birthing Centre at Windsor Regional Hospital. The initiative is part of a larger Baby Oral Health strategy designed to educate parents about the vital importance of baby oral health and encourage dental professionals to welcome infants to their practice.

Each Oral Health Shark Bag contains: • Baby Oral Health education resource • Toothbrush • Toothpaste • Infant finger brush • Baby teeth flosser • Tooth eruption magnet that explains when to expect baby teeth and when they fall out

“Many people think that baby teeth don’t matter because they’ll eventually fall out,” said Dr. Domenic Aversa from the Essex County Dental Society. “But baby teeth are very important because they help your child chew food and talk clearly. “They also save space for the permanent teeth.”

Baby dental care should begin before their first tooth arrives. Dental professionals suggest that parents and caregivers wipe the baby’s mouth and gums using a clean, warm cloth after each feeding and before bed.

Dr. Aversa added that early childhood decay is the most common chronic disease of childhood and a huge problem. The treatment of early childhood dental decay consumes 30 per cent of all day surgeries time in Canada – often with long wait times. “In 2014, day surgeries among children and youth in Windsor and Essex County was almost two and a half times the Ontario average – costing our hospitals more than a million dollars a year,” said Dr. Aversa. “Cavities are a significant public health problem that is largely preventable.”

Collectively Dr. Aversa and his colleagues are determined to reverse the trend through the examination of children earlier, educating and counseling of parents, assess the potential risk of decay and try to anticipate and prevent problems from developing. The Essex County Dental Society suggests bringing your baby to the dentist by their first birthday for an oral health exam or within six months of the eruption of the first tooth. Parents are encouraged to call your dental care provider to discuss baby oral health options. According to Dr. Aversa, proper diet and nutrition are key to the prevention of early childhood dental decay. Babies should never be allowed to fall asleep with bottles of formula, milk or juices in their mouths. Parents should also pay attention to the amount of refined sugars a child is allowed to consume. Foods like milk, cheese and green leafy vegetables help to strengthen teeth. “We now know that excellent oral health is part of overall good general health and it is a fundamental part of every stage of life,” said Dr. Aversa. “It is much easier to prevent cavities and other dental issues than to treat or repair them later.”

Healthy meals for the holiday hustle Favourite foods, seasonal soirées, and spending time with family and friends are just a few things that define the holidays. But these seasonal staples also mean busy schedules with little time to prepare nutritious meals. Fast food may be a quick solution to getting meals on the table, but chef Matt Basile of Toronto’s first street food experience company, Fidel Gastro, has a better solution. He recommends creating healthy recipes with the Panasonic Steam Convection Oven that can be made in less time than it takes for delivery, without compromising on flavour. Here’s one of his favourites – Spicy Buttered Lemon Chicken.
